In New Mexico&rsquo;s isolated art colonies, they found the freedom and social acceptance to excel. Matthews Gallery presents the stories and artwork of&nbsp;<a href="http://thematthewsgallery.com/Artist-Detail.cfm?ArtistsID=325" target="_blank">Janet Lippincott</a>, Agnes Sims, Doris Cross and other women who found a powerful voice in the Land of Enchantment.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">NEW LANDSCAPES, NEW VISTAS&nbsp;opens with a special reception on Friday, May 8&nbsp;from 5-7 pm.

Her familiar compositions present a countryside or city street that is safe from industry and technology. Broad village streets draw you in and the aged quality of the buildings suggest awkward inadequacies and fallacies. Her work is developed in simple and sometimes bold strokes of tonal hues, while the immediacy of her palette knife marks provide an intimate experience of beloved, imagined places.</p> Mon, 23 Mar 2015 06:56:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Tom Jaszczak, Sunshine Cobb, Doug Peltzman - Santa Fe Clay - February 27th - April 11th Mon, 23 Mar 2015 06:54:13 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Derek Hess - Modified Arts - April 3rd 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Please join us as we welcome this legendary artist to Phoenix with his solo exhibition, &ldquo;Everything&rsquo;s Not Okay.&rdquo;&nbsp;<a title="Perihelion Arts" href="http://www.perihelionarts.com/" target="_blank"><strong>Perihelion Arts</strong></a>&nbsp;makes its return to Modified Arts to present the first exhibition of&nbsp;<a title="Derek Hess" href="http://derekhess.com/" target="_blank"><strong>Derek Hess</strong></a>&lsquo;s work in Phoenix in five years.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>About the Artist:</strong><br />Derek Hess&rsquo;s work has been recognized in both the music and art world for over 20 years.

From 2011 to the spring of 2014, they lived and worked here in Santa Fe, running an art exhibition space called &ldquo;Caldera Gallery&rdquo; as well as making their own art.

In fact, all of SCUBA&rsquo;s work in recent years has been three-dimensional, even though their roots are in painting. The current show &ldquo;Expo&rdquo; is made up of drawings created by a fairly elaborate method that allows non-hierarchical cooperation, negation and a transformation of the original artist&rsquo;s marks through process. In the current work, the artists take turns working on drawings executed with dry-erase markers on Plexiglas.

On March 20, Greenberg Fine Art is proud to challenge the public to participate in an artist&rsquo;s journey of capturing material reflections. &ldquo;We want to showcase our artists&rsquo; greatest talents,&rdquo; Says Bella Gaspich, Greenberg Art Director, &ldquo;Material reflections are one of the most difficult things to capture and yet our artists do it so effortlessly.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Rising to the challenge, featured artist Laurin McCracken, doesn&rsquo;t find it difficult to capture reflections, but rather enjoys the challenge. &ldquo;Part of my goal in my painting is not only to use heightened realism to grab the attention of the viewer, but I want it to have the layers of realism so the viewer can stay with it long enough to get it,&rdquo; Says McCracken, &ldquo;It&rsquo;s not what you look at it&rsquo;s what you see that&rsquo;s important.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Feeling the show to be a great fit for her work, Wendy Higgins&rsquo; paintings call the viewer to feel within to a larger truth. &ldquo;The world offers us endless distractions in its loud display of the outer, phenomenal world,&rdquo; Says Higgins, &ldquo;I am much more drawn to subtler realms and the non-physical reality and feel the paintings reflect that very orientation.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Often attracted to reflections in his work, Joseph Breza can recall these mysterious light effects speaking to him since childhood. &ldquo;The light effects are what keep me moving forward,&rdquo; Says Breza, &ldquo;In the show reflections, I continue my pursuit of natures&rsquo; reflections and hope to catch a glimpse of what I see.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The inspiration for &lsquo;Reflections,&rsquo; is a collective brainchild of the entire Greenberg staff. Immersed on a daily basis with artists who take 2D material and breathe life into it so that it almost jumps off of the canvas. &ldquo;You look at Laurin&rsquo;s apples on tinfoil and it&rsquo;s so tactile that it looks like you could tear the foil off the canvas,&rdquo; Says Gaspich, &ldquo;It&rsquo;s quite exciting for Greenberg artists to fit so well into the reflections show, and it&rsquo;s truly a great opportunity to share our artists&rsquo; talents with the public.&rdquo;</p> Mon, 23 Mar 2015 06:36:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list
